  • Any ideas on these teeth?

    Couple of teeth I picked up looking for points, thought they might be old, any guesses to what they might have belonged to?

    Look similar to horse teeth that have been broken, to me.
    But, they are a bit slimmer than the molar I’ve found. Maybe teeth more toward the front?

    This last is a photo from the internet, not mine, showing other horse tooth sizes and shapes.

        Thanks for the replies, it does look close to those horse teeth, I'll have to do some digging see if I can find the post on how to tell bison teeth. They could go either way in the camp I found them in, I've found early Archaic all the way to a rusted octagon rifle barrel, I even found the top 1/3 of a bison skull that has one horn on it. The problem I'm running into is the more I look for artifacts, the more other stuff like this I find, the more I have to study to learn what I'm looking at lol. I guess I never thought that I can compare them to the teeth on a complete bison skull I found last fall hunting.

            Thanks, I put in a lot of miles over the years specifically looking for bison skulls and I'm here to say it's not easy to find a full one or even a partial for that matter, I've been looking and keeping a eye out for 15 years and the crazy part is I found those two within 3 months of each other. The old timers did a good job on cleaning up and selling those bison bones back in the day for fertilizer, glue, ect.

          See post number 8 on this thread:.

          Cow teeth? - ArrowHeads.com

          The occlusal pattern on FrontRange's cheek tooth is typical for cow or bison but, as evidenced in the very first picture, there is a stylid which is isolated from the main body of the tooth as a discrete column of enamel with cementum holding it in place. All should become clear when you read that thread, but the tooth has almost 100% conclusive diagnostics for Bison.
